Of subtle erotic undertones, this stained wooden netsuke is carved as a man straddling a large gourd. The man’s facial expression suggests the difficulty of the task. The netsuke is in general good condition with only a minor old chip to left ear, hardly perceptible. Provenance: Ex.CV Roosevelt collection. Length: 2” 19th century, Japan
